Data-centric Approach to All Elite Wrestling

Motivation

Visualizing the Elite combines two things I really enjoy: professional wrestling and data analytics. The motivation behind this project is to utilize match data to provide an overview of things like how your favorite wrestlers are performing in terms of wins and losses, how often wrestlers are used on specific programs, and how wrestlers are being featured in in-ring competitions. The interactive dashboards can be used to enable users to explore the rankings and statistics among wrestlers. The analytical platform can be used to assist in developing storylines among wrestlers.

Data collection

Technologies used: Python, Beautiful Soup, JSON, Tableau, HTML/CSS, Bootstrap
